Abia Warriors boss calls for calm

13 July 2016, 09:52

Lagos - Chairman of Abia Warriors Football Club of Umuahia, Emeka Inyama has called on the fans of the club to continue to lend their unalloyed support to the team even as the club goes through its perilous times.

Inyama, who addressed newsmen in Umuahia, said that the management and the Technical Crew were worried about recent results posted by the club, adding that urgent measures were being taken to return the team to winning ways.

“Every club has its good and bad times and it is unfortunate that our own bad time is coming at this point in time. This is still the same Abia Warriors that was the talk of the town when the season started.

“We became the first team from the beginning of the season that went 10 matches unbeaten but we were hampered by series of injuries to our key players. But I am happy we have gradually overcome that as our last match with Rangers International in Enugu could have gone either way” Inyama said.

According to him, the players and their coaches are now more determined to better the fortunes of the club insisting that the support of the fans will go a long way in making this dream a reality.

News24 reported in May that Abia Warriors described as unfounded, earlier reports purportedly making their rounds that Manager Kennedy Boboye is set to dump the club for rival teams ahead of the second phase of the league. The club has however been in poor form since the start of the second stanza of the league.
